Mark your calendars! This month’s Helicon West will be a special treat. Salt Lake City based writer Bryan Young, author of bestseller Lost at the Con, critically acclaimed novel Operation: Montauk, and numerous short stories, will be making the trek north to read at Helicon West. More than a novelist, Bryan also dabbles in film, and has worked as a producer on multiple films, including The Divided State and Killer at large. He frequently contributes to the Salt Lake City Weekly, Huffington Post, and Big Shiny Robot! (of which he’s also the editor). In all this writing kerfuffle, he also finds time to write and host The Big Shiny Geek Show Pub Quiz in Salt Lake, which was just voted the best Pub Quiz in Utah. In a week, Bryan will be accepting the Mayor’s Artist Award for literary arts at the Utah Arts Festival. His work is widely varied, reminiscent of Hemingway, and clearly the work of someone who writes more than he does pretty much anything else. You definitely don’t want to miss this reading.
As always, after Bryan’s reading there will be an open mic. Bring your newest, your oldest, and/or your favorite piece to read! Or, if you don’t want to read, come and listen to the work of other writers in the Logan writing community. Bring your family and friends, and we’ll see you on June 27th at 7:00 PM!
